years ago following the death of franklin roosevelt, harry truman became president. he was thought by most to be a petty politician, not very smart and likely to fail. he had been vice president for less than two months and done little to prepare for his new job. and yet he is remembered now as one of our most effective presidents, so effective that a prestigious national security project bears his name. the reason is that harry truman both understood and reflected what is best about america. he was optimistic about the prospects for human progress but conscious of the perils posed by weakness and fear. he was proud of america's strength but aware of the need for allies and friends. he thought of the united states as exceptional but not because it was exempt from the rules that apply to others. to him, america was the champion of liberty, law and justice for all. we admire president truman because he dared to build greatly, and because what he built was made to last. to honor his legacy, we -- and that includes all of us -- must strive to do the same. so to that end, i pledge my ow

, governor of massachusetts, and that's where -- >> maybe ckamala harris who is really attractive, apparently. >> we're not going to get into that. the other group is young voters. we have a statistic that really -- i want to put this up. this is a graph of voter turnout in 2008, 2010, 2012. this illustrates it perfectly. they're there for obama in 2008. they disappear in 2010. they're back in 2012. and it seems like, again, this is something that democrats look at and say if we could make this a regular part of our coalition, there's a lot of potential here. but how do you do it? >> well, i think one of the worrisome things is that the republicans have figured out that if they can just thwart the president, it's not just about thwarting the president for the fun of it -- it is fun for them -- but it's also about blocking his agenda and making this generation that's coming up in this era very cynical about government. and you're seeing that there's also that recent poll that showed they are -- they are losing hope. they are worried that things can't change. you know, they may not entirely und

committee from meeting to vote on the nomination to be secretary of labor. harry reid spoke about the move today on the senate floor. now the minority's tactics -- republican tactics of obstruction and delay are well-known, but they're also well-worn. those methods were once again on display yesterday when republicans delayed for the second time in two weeks the senate help committee vote on the nomination of tom perez to lead the department of labor. the able and considerate chairman, tom harass quinn, had already postponed the vote for two weeks, at the request of republicans. it was terribly disappointing that after they were granted additional time as a matter of courtesy, an anonymous republican would employ an arcane procedural tactic to prevent the committee from even meeting. of course voting on that nomination. republicans had seven weeks, 49 days, to consider this nomination. he was nominated on march 21, and since his confirmation hearing in april, he's responded in writing to more than 200 questions. he is an extremely qualified candidate for this job. the president was smart t
